Destination: Up North

Previous trend reports revealed the expansion of business ventures and thriving economic centers towards cities and provinces outside Metro Manila. While the capital region remains to have the highest demand, a lot of adjacent areas (Central Luzon, for example) are now getting a share of the investors' attention.

The government has likewise launched countryside advancement programs including big-ticket infrastructures that would make the rural areas even more accessible. These 'geographically inclusive' projects are also part of the conscious effort to decongest the nation's capital.

Given these developments, it is safe and optimistic to say that Ilocos Norte is next in line as the desired investment hub in the northern Philippines. With its strategic location, vast natural resources, competitive business environment, and supportive local government unit, the province is more than ready for further growth and be a gateway for trade and investments.

Ilocos Norte is set to entice future investors to look beyond the Metro and realize that there is no other way but up (north).
